WASHINGTON POST: The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president's first inauguration.

The Obamas' motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. The cars and SUVs traveled past St. John's Episcopal Church, where the Obamas attended Easter services last year, north on 16th Street, as crowds of curious onlookers lined the street.

The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others.

The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters Malia, wearing a yellow dress, and Sasha, in a pale gray blue, sat beside. The president's head rocked as he kept rhythm with the choir.
